Heritage Park invites you to step back in time and spend the night in the “Big Red Barn” with your youth group. Experience a sleepover in our renovated Repsol Heritage Education Centre in Burns’ Barn. In the evening, let our Educational Interpreters guide your group through several hands-on and engaging historical activities, like making ice cream the old-fashioned way! When it’s time for bed, your group will “hit the hay” in one of our twenty-two bunks. In the morning, enjoy breakfast, an interactive scavenger hunt in our historical village, and free time to explore our renowned Gasoline Alley Museum. Your group will love spending the night in this unique, historical setting!
